1919. The short-lived General Strike in Limerick which produced an interesting banknote issue.

LSNC total of recorded notes now stands at 42 notes

I came across another 1/- note today! It fits into the current categorisation as A1: correct signatures; stamped; numbered.
The note is a decent VF, and is in the National Museum of Ireland.

The note also extends the number bracket recorded for the One shilling notes by 37, up to 399. It is the highest number seen for any denomination.

That's a very nice find and very interesting to see such a high number !

I wonder does it suggest 400 or more per denomination?

400 per denomination sounds reasonable for the 1 Shilling and 10 Shilling (highest seen 357), not sure if we can say that for the 5 Shilling yet as the highest number seen is well short at 195.

Mac, I came across this Limerick Soviet 10 Shillings while looking for something else. Is it recorded in the census? An interesting feature is the missing oval stamp.

A nice find. This one is new tot he census.
Number 261 is also recorded in the census, and it does have the oval stamp on it.

I've been checking all the Bank of England Museum tweets and this Limerick 10s #275 is highlighted by them. Presumably it's in their museum!
